Lamar Jackson throws 5 TD passes, Ravens rout Rams 45-6
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Lamar Jackson basically hadn't allowed the football to touch the ground Monday night until he dropped an ordinary shotgun snap late in the first half at the Coliseum. He picked it up, split the pocket and sprinted away through the Rams' defense, going 35 thrilling yards before tripping right at the goal line.
Instead of celebrating, Jackson sprung up and remonstratively slapped both his hands on his helmet.
Baltimore's brilliant young quarterback wants to be perfect. He got awfully close in his "Monday Night Football" debut with the fearsome Ravens.
Jackson matched his career high with five touchdown passes and ran for 95 yards in another splendid all-around performance, and Baltimore routed Los Angeles 45-6 f
